They will help to develop and improve a number of skills and qualities including co-ordination, self-discipline, self-confidence, social skills, and physical fitness.

The benefits that dance & drama education can bring are unlimited which aid in scholastic endeavours and personal growth.

At the Lisa Marie School of Dance we make dancing fun !!!

There will be activities to meet everyone’s needs whatever age or ability. All teachers are qualified with the International Dance Teachers Association, the Royal Academy of Dance and the United Kingdom Alliance and are well experienced in teaching dance & drama.

The school has grown during the past years to have an excess of 100 students covering Ballet, Tap, Modern, Disco, Gymnastics and ShowTime.

From the beginning we have been fortunate to have a diverse group of energetic, friendly and fun loving children of all ages. With the effort of the children, teachers and parents The Lisa Marie School of Dance & Performing Arts is a school that people can trust to learn in a safe and fun environment.

The growth of the children’s abilities has been the success story so far and most of the children have been involved in Dance Festivals and Competitions winning awards and gaining certificates. Some of our children dance with professionals at the local York Theatres in Christmas Pantomimes and other productions. The Lisa Marie School of Dance has performed a number of dance shows around Yorkshire and we have a trip to Blackpool each year to dance on the largest stage in Europe. We undertake our own shows on a professional stage along with our involvement in Summer Fairs and other charitable events.

We look forward to welcoming your child to join in the fun!!!
